after the photo retreat in beynac, i spent a few more days in paris with my beautiful friend marci. we walked, shopped, ate and toured so many museums and places until we couldn’t feel our legs or feet at the end of each day. it was perfect. here are a few photos… more to come.

    Love your pictures and the subjects. Have traveled quite extensively but never to Paris :( That's my next destination for sure! Thank you so much for sharing this!

  2. jones

    looks like you learned a lot at the retreat. those photos are stunning!

  3. Oh my, those pictures are SO SO SO gorgeous.

  4. woooooowza! Places like that really exist! ;)

    I really need to travel more! That looks amazing!

    Do share more pics!


  5. Maria

    gorgeous pictures, can't wait to see more!

  6. Can I ask you a question? How did you manage to take pictures in France especially Paris because from what I understand, they don't allowed picture taking. Did you ask the shops permission to take picture of their bakery? Would love to know.

  7. Dip-tea

    Your friend is gorgeous. And the chocolate roll and pie looks so delicious, yumm yumm. Love the picture collection Naomi!

  8. Chaucee

    What fun this looks like!

  9. Caty

    I want to go to Paris SO badly! Your photos are lovely and the bakery looks wonderful.

  10. @dancing mischief, nobody ever told me i couldn't have my camera out in paris. sometimes in a shop i'll ask first, but i never had a problem. you can take pictures all you want in paris.

    @chiara, SO many french treats! it was almost disgusting. i kept telling myself it was OK since we were walking 10+ miles every day. have been craving more bread and nutella since being home. i loved the french treats!

  22. what a fabulous time!! and naomi, i don't know if it's the summer sun or if you lightened your hair, but it looks lovely :)

  23. naomi these photos are so lovely! gosh you are a good photographer!
    and those deserts. ahh mouthwatering.
    some how though it does even out. with all the walking around. i ate sweets like it was nobody's business in europe and i seemed to loose weight. how silly is that

  25. Molly

    naomi – you are such a stylish traveler! so refreshing to see someone not wearing cross trainers and running shorts {atleast not all the time…} :)

  74. Naomi, I didn't realize you are such a talented photographer! You could have been teaching us in Beynac, too, I think! Thanks for being such a patient and perfect model for us.
